kobane - it's a stone's throw from where you are. finally positive news to report as a consequence of those air strikes. >> it looks like it, yes. it's been quiet this morning, early quiet considering most of the time we've been here, all we here behind us is gunfair, more far fire, not even air strikes today, although the sound of fighter jets flying overhead - yes, they have made a difference. syrian kurdish fighters told us as a consequence of air strikes last night - they say there's about 11, they've been able to retake more area than have been controlled by i.s.i.l. in kobane, and have been able to retake those positions unopposed. they haven't been fighting with i.s.i.l., they've been able to take the positions back. there hasn't been the i.s.i.l. fighters around, it seems, to take on.
